Burning thousands of books. But who needs them, if they disagree with the Qur’an? “Militants bomb Gaza YMCA library,” from the BBC (thanks to all who sent this in):
Gunmen have attacked the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) in Gaza City and blown up its library, burning thousands of books, its director says.
Eissa Saba said 14 men overpowered the centre’s two security guards before placing bombs in the library and main office. The latter did not explode.
The YMCA in Gaza City is open to Palestinians from all communities.
Gaza, which is controlled by the Islamist group Hamas, is home to 3,500 Christians, mostly Greek Orthodox.
Some have spoken of intimidation, but correspondents say Hamas itself has not shown hostility towards Christians since it ousted its Fatah party rivals from the territory in June.
Of course not.
